Information on entry requirements, scholarships, and agents for applicants from Ukraine for 2022 and September 2023 entry
The University of Dundee unequivocally condemns the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation and calls for a peaceful solution that avoids further bloodshed and tragedy.
We are keen to support students from Ukraine who wish to study at the University of Dundee whether you have applied already or not. We also have several funding and support schemes in place, depending on your status as explained on this page.
We have reached out to all our current students from Ukraine and neighbouring countries to offer practical support and advice.
- are a Ukrainian national (passport or residency documentation)
- were residing in Ukraine on or immediately before 1 January 2022 (including if you have now left Ukraine)
- your fee will be the equivalent of the fee charged to Scottish students. However, a fee status assessment will still be completed to determine any visa requirements and associated processes.
Once you arrive in Dundee
You may be able to apply for SAAS (Student Awards Agency Scotland) funding which will support you throughout your studies if you are eligible and have applied to any of the following visa schemes:
- Homes for Ukraine
- Ukraine Family

Full information will be provided by SAAS.
Evidence of your immigration status in the UK will be required prior to matriculation.
Additional support will be provided if you are unable to access academic transcripts or English language support.
If you are a new applicant (including transfers)
You can look at the subjects and courses we offer on our website.
We understand that it may be difficult for you to access academic transcripts or English language proficiency tests at the moment.

For transfers from a Ukrainian university
If you are a transfer applicant who has started studying at a Ukrainian university and wish to complete your studies with us, we welcome an application to transfer into a course which matches your interrupted studies. Look at the subjects and courses we offer on our website to find a suitable match. If we are unable to offer you a place on the course you have selected to study, we will support you to find an appropriate match.
It is important to give as much information about what you have studied already so that we can review the modules you have completed and ensure we match you with the most appropriate course. We will also have to assess your level of English language.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer transfers into our Undergraduate Medicine course. Applicants wishing to transfer must start their studies from Year 1 and apply before the application deadline of 15th October 2022.
